Health Canada has recalled the following convertible high chairs, as the tray can detach, posing a fall hazard:
Although Health Canada has not received any reports, Evenflo has received 18 reports of incidents, including eight involving children who fell from the high chair and sustained bumps and bruises.
Customers should stop using the product and contact Evenflo for a replacement tray with installation and use instructions.

Science blows my mind (no pun) sometimes. And this latest revelation has enormous implications. A team of at Boston Children's Hospital (BMC) have claimed they can now identify autism in children as young as two years old—through a simple EEG test, which records electrical brain activity using scalp electrodes.
After a trial involving nearly 1,000 kids between the ages of two to 12, the BMC Medicine study found that children with autism consistently showed 33 EEG patterns which differed from that of neurotypical children.
Diagnosing autism can be notoriously difficult as individuals "on the spectrum" can present characteristics differently. There are typically long waiting times for testing that is often subjective and protracted. In many cases, autism can go undetected—and therefore unsupported—for years.
Lead researcher Dr Frank Duffy told the BBC that the study offers hope of diagnosing autistic children, as well as their siblings. More research is required, although researchers repeated testing 10 times, detecting with 90 per cent accuracy those children with autism.
It remains to be seen whether children with Asperger's syndrome—known as 'high-functioning autism'—show similar EEG patterns. The results would no doubt help determine whether Asperger's should continue fall within the autism spectrum, currently a hotbed of debate among psychologists.
We've seen women do it live in art galleries and streamed online. Even in this exhibitionist age, the latest expose of the miracle of childbirth was shot in an unlikely place: an MRI machine. From inside the birth canal of a 24-year-old woman from Berlin, Germany.
The mother-of-two consented to delivering a baby inside a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine. Even though the birth happened in 2010, the 30-second video has only recently been released for public viewing. And what viewing it makes!
(Un)fortunately the footage ends just before the baby's head emerges, as doctors didn't want to expose the newborn to the high-pitched noise of the MRI.
Fascinating or TMI? Has science gone too far in 'medicalizing' childbirth and stripping it of its mystique? Should it leave well alone?
